I played Yooka-Laylee for the first time today!
I don't know if this is a glitch or if something just went wrong with my Switch (overheated?) but when I was in Tribalstack Tropics battling the minions to rescue the explorer skeleton lady, a black screen with an error message appeared saying something went wrong with the software and that the game would have to close and asked if I wanted to send an error report.
Holy crap! That's quite the glitch/bug/general error. Glad to say that's never happened with me on any Switch software. I'll make a special note in the opening post. Should be updated to what we've found thus far.
So I must just be "lucky", but I just got another black screen error, this time while playing Capitol Cashino (unexpanded level) for the first time, but it was a different black screen error to the other one I already reported in this thread. The whole screen went black this time (whereas when it happened the last time I think it was a black text box that took up most of the screen but you could still see the game in the background), and all it said was "The software was closed because an error occurred" (whereas last time it gave me the option to send an error report first), and then the game closed and I lost most of the casino tokens and quills I'd already found (which wasn't a whole heap, but I'm still annoyed that I'll have to collect what I already had again). I've just gone back to take this screenshot of the area I was in when the error happened (though I'd already collected the quills and tokens for that challenge):
I had been stuck in behind that diamond signpost because I pressed the wrong buttons and accidentally did the dash move instead of the sonic boom move, but after about 20 seconds of trying various moves I managed to free myself, and then I think the error happened within about a minute after I got free.
And since the Switch wouldn't let me screenshot the error screen, here's a photo of my TV screen showing it:
This was the Australian version of the game, played with the Switch console docked, using the Switch pro controller. And this is a different TV and dock to the one I was playing on last time I got a black screen error, as I have two Switch docks.
